LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police have arrested one suspect and cleared another in the armed robbery of the Bellagio hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas police say they arrested the suspect about 11:30 p.m. Saturday at the Hard Rock hotel-casino the day after the heist.

Officer Larry Hadfield said Monday they haven't identified him so he's referred to as John Doe.

He was booked into the Clark County jail Sunday on charges including burglary and robbery with a deadly weapon. Jail records show the only John Doe booked on those charges Sunday was an 84-year-old white male.

Robbery detectives initially identified another person of interest in the case and distributed a photo of 32-year-old Jesse Jones before issuing a statement late Sunday that said he is not considered a suspect.
